    That's more like it! I agree though with Schilling. But still there is something exciting, ok also sensationalist and macabre, about this ad using documentary material. But as Marilyn says: it is true! This for an ad is at least true and aesthetically quite beautiful. Luckily Chanel No5 had been worn by Marilyn!

    I love how a fragrance takes on a life of its own in modern media. Vive Chanel No. 5!

    Yes, these visuals set to Pierre Avia's "Westernize" are cool and classy, but one thing doesn't sit well with me. For many of us, Marilyn holds a special place in our heart and no doubt, Chanel was thrilled to buy the rights to this snippet of her plugging No. 5. However, my gut (and ear) says that she's under the influence on this recording. We know enough about this woman to understand that she suffered horribly in the last few years of her life. I would have preferred that Chanel had not mixed marketing with documentation of someone while in a private crisis.
    Wasn't Brad Pitt sufficient?

    Chanel could have made a killer modern ad campaign around this footage and audio. The Brad Pitt ads are lame-o.

    Love the music in the video too.
